Method

  • Melt butter and sugar in the milk/water mix to 37°C (use thermometer or temperature probe)

  • Add yeast and stir until dispersed

  • Add half of sieved flour and combine to form a batter like mixture (this is the sponge)

  • Allow to prove for 30 minutes

  • Crush garlic to a puree, finely dice the onion and add to the oil, sweat until softened and set aside

  • When cool add the sliced olives

  • Knock back the sponge by rapping the bowl on bench and add the onion and olive mixture

  • Add enough of the remaining sieved flour and salt to form a loose dough (this should still be slightly sticky)

  • Turn out onto a lightly floured work bench and knead for approx. 10 minutes to develop the gluten strands until a soft, elastic dough is formed

  • Place in a lightly oiled bowl, cover with a damp cloth and prove until doubled in size

  • Knock back and ‘scale’ into thirds and two-thirds

For plaited loaf  (from the 1/3 mix)

  • Scale into three even size pieces and roll into three equal lengths

  • Plait

  • Place onto lightly greased tray and re-prove until double its size

  • Lightly brush with eggwash all over (be sure to brush all over, in a neat even fashion)

  • Bake at 200°C for 15 – 20 minutes

  • Brush with eggwash again, sprinkle with seeds and bake for a further 2 minutes

For rolls (from the 2/3 mix)

  • Scale into 10 - 15 even pieces and shape into rolls

  • Place onto lightly greased tray and re-prove until doubled in size

  • Brush with eggwash all over (be sure to brush all over, in a neat even fashion)

  • Bake at 200°C for 12 minutes

  • Brush with eggwash again, sprinkle with seeds and bake for a further 2 minutes

Chef's Tip:

When placing breads in the oven ensure they are placed on the middle shelf and checked after 5 minutes. Cover with tin foil if required to prevent further browning.

Enjoy and bon appetit . . . . .
